Community Video Series – Day 1

About a week ago, I decided I would do a video series to keep connected to my community during the evolving virus situation. I told myself I would do a video a day during the isolation period. Initially, I envisioned this as the time I would be home while school was closed. But, this morning with so many friends and followers already practicing social distancing, working from home, and in areas where schools are closed, I decided to start the video series.

These videos are meant as a way to stay connected. I plan to talk about history and fiber art related topics. There will likely be some show’n’tell. I would like ideas about what you would like me to talk about. I could do a Q&A session if you like. Please add comments below about what you would like to hear.

I am also deciding where I would like to place these videos. I am currently thinking my old Anna’s Updates blog would be best so people can choose to go see them there. The link is over on the right or at the bottom depending on what device you are on. I added a subscribe button to that. (the rest of the posts are older.)

If I can get my phone to upload quickly, I am going to aim for 10-15 minute videos.

Here is today’s:

  1. I would love to see how you decorate a hat or bonnet. How do you decide what materials to use. Do you hand sew everything? What thread, needles, ribbon, flowers, etc do you use. Also, a demonstration on how you make your hats or bonnets. I know they are a LOT of work and I think some people need to see how much work goes into them and why the price you charge is more than justified.

  2. Tutorial on decorating hats

  3. I would like to make a winter bonnet from your book. I’m having a hard time finding the proper silk. Could you please give me an idea where to find the fabrics. Thank you!

  4. I don’t know if you’ve covered this, but it would be fun to hear how you got started in costuming and bonnet making. Do you have a special collection and which one took your breath away when you saw it! Thank you, I love your blog!!

  5. Anna, this is a great idea! Any topic is fine, although I do like the idea of a hat decorating tutorial. Love your kitty!
